A club hockey team beat a Division 1 hockey team last night. So let’s put to rest the idea that club hockey is ****ty hockey. The final score: Liberty University (2) Long Island University (1)
Long Island just turned D1 this year. Lets not get crazy. Anything can happen in one game and we arent talking a D1 powerhouse here.
Club hockey is made up of three types of players.
1. Kids that have the skill to play D1 but no longer want to put the work in or have the drive to compete daily
2. Kids who knew they were not great at hockey but still pretty good and just enjoy hockey. But know they can’t make the actual team.
And lastly, where it sounds your kid fits in.
3. Kids that are not great but still hang into hope and falsely think that the hockey coach is checking the club team for talent to pull up.
Since they won, did they get to sleep with Jerry's wife?
Just asking for my dad.
Yes and Long Island beat Liberty the next night 4-0.
It's not a surprise, LIU has very large roster, probably played a number of those kids to get some ice time. At the same time Liberty has 3 club teams, Div I, II, III, their Div team is loaded with Canadian kids who have aged out of major juniors, so yes, they don't suck
In the 2-1 loss LIU had vs Liberty the 1st night, LIU out shot Liberty 50-28. Let's not get too excited here. LIU has a very large roster of lower end DI players who weren't playing at other schools for the most. Liberty is loaded with 25 year-old age out from major juniors in Canada.
And to be specific, they have 7 Canadians and 2 Russians playing club hockey in Virginia on their D1 ACHA team, not your typical college club hockey team?
